MADISON (WKOW) -- More campaign fundraising information for Wisconsin politicians is coming out following the most recent reporting deadline.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen raised $160,000 in campaign cash over the first six months of the year. Campaign finance reports released Monday show Van Hollen spent nearly $80,000 and had $214,250 in the bank as of June 30.
Van Hollen, a Republican, is expected to run for a second term next year. No one has officially declared a run against him, although former state Department of Natural Resources Secretary Scott Hassett has said he's mulling a challenge.
State Government Accountability Board records didn't show any campaign finance reports for Hassett as of Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Republican Scott Walker says raising $1.1 million in the first six months of this year during his run for the Governor's office.
Reports filed Monday show Walker out-raised incumbent Gov. Jim Doyle by $200,000.
Walker says his strong fundraising should remove any doubts from those who wondered whether he could raise the money needed to mount a successful campaign. Concerns over his fundraising ability led to his dropping out of the governor's race in 2006.
Doyle campaign spokesman Mike Edmondson says he believes the governor is in a "very competitive" position. But he says Doyle has been focused on his job as governor, not raising campaign money.
Doyle has $2 million cash on hand and Walker has $1.1 million.
Another Republican candidate for the office, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann, didn't launch his campaign until after the current reporting period, which closed at the end of June.
